My First Treasury!

I have just made my first treasury on Etsy! A treasury is a selection of items that you pick, usually with a theme, to help promote others and to display your favourites. If you're very lucky of course, it might encourage people to do the same for you! I hope you enjoy looking at this lovely selection of sea-hued nautical finds!

Getting Technical

As well as recently joining Etsy, Inspired: Scilly have now linked up their Facebook fan page with Etsy and the blog, plus every time an item is uploaded to Folksy, Etsy or our website, it shows up on Facebook! So, if you become our 'fan' on Facebook, you get to know first hand what items are new, where they've been listed and what the latest news is on our blog, plus any events we're going to! It's all so technical, I need to lie down!

The Alien has Landed!

It's not quite finished but here is my completely crazy felt creation (from a previous post entitled 'Is that an alien on your head'.. in hat form. I need some nice matching felt to go on the underside to finish it off but I'm quite pleased so far. Now to find someone who would wear it! That could be trickier!!

My favourite bit has to be the 'dreads' (an unusual alternative to feathers I think you'll agree) and beads - I guess it all looks a bit like seaweed in the water. It's hard to make out from the pic but there are some lovely coral and blue sparkly threads in the middle.
